Luke Bryan gets candid about “brainwashing” his kids into doing this one thing


When it comes to “Huntin,’ Fishin,’ and Lovin’ Every Day,” Luke Bryan does all three. But, casting the fishing pole out in the water might be his favorite thing to do at the moment.

In fact, the ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee often takes his sons, Thomas Boyer, 9, and Tatum Christopher, 6, whom he shares with wife Caroline Boyer, on fishing trips.

While the two boys enjoy baiting hooks and catching fish, sometimes they get the urge to do other fun activities. So, Luke is trying to condition his kiddos into becoming fishermen early.

“So I brainwashed my 9-year-old,” he said proudly, while appearing on “The Bobby Bone’s Show” on March 29. “It’s very important to brainwash them in the outdoors, at a very young age. So now I’m in the process of brainwashing my 6-year-old into fishing – and making him love it.”

“Here’s the deal,” he reasons, “when he loves it, daddy gets to take him. Therefore, daddy gets to fish!”

Turns out that Caroline doesn’t suspect her hubby’s sneaky antics. In fact, when he’s busy “brainwashing” his little ones, he knows just what to say.

“I’m like, ‘Hey baby, the boys really, really want to go fishing.’ So, my 6-year-old is die-hard wanting to fish all the time right now,” Luke explained. “And, they’re in the back going, ‘We want to go to the arcade! We want to go to jump street, or something.’”

How clever Luke!
